    Hi All,

    I've been addicted to this site for years, and figured it was finally time to register, and also ask for some help! :)

    I apologize if this may have already been discussed, but I did a quick search and didn't see anything recent.

    I have a two-year old 15" Macbook Pro. My kids dropped it the other day and the screen seems to be a little looser than normal. It works totally fine, and still stands up in most positions, but its just not as tight as before. I brought it to the Apple store and they said they only replace, not adjust. And outside of warranty, it would be $430 plus labor.

    So, might there be anyways to tighten the screen? Or, even a way to maybe just take off the keyboard to take a ponder and see if any adjustments can be made?

    Thanks in advance!

    Check iFixit's teardown guides to see if you find anything useful there. Removing the keyboard probably isn't necessary; you should be able to access whatever hardware you need to by removing the bottom case.
